Wasted Days TV: Episode V, Kevin Finn's Revelation Records Collection







Here's a fun little video I made with Kevin Finn about his legendary Revelation Records vinyl collection. The Rev collection that people try to duplicate but I don't think that will ever be possible. The entire interview was two hours long and it was hard to decide what to cut out but hopefully people will dig it.

The thing I like the most that doesn't really come across in the video is the kind of "go for it" spirit that Kevin has to complete his collection. He turned down multiple million dollar job offers on Wall Street to put himself into the center of it all at RevHQ and went on to start the Rev Board and the Trade Board. It's like if you collected baseball cards and turned down job offers to take a shitty job at Fleer instead.

In my eyes he created a Rev record collecting craze once he published the pressing info he researched and compiled online, that still continues to this day.
